"Translating" your seminar or tutorial into a digital format

The following questions can help you to design and prepare your digital course from a didactic point of view.

The aim of the following questions is to help you design digital alternatives to your attendance courses that are as suitable as possible you as a teacher and your style of teaching.

JGU provides a variety of programs for digital teaching. The Team "Digitale Lehre" is designed to help teachers with the approach that best suits them. This questionnaire is tool for planning and reflecting for teachers who would like to get to know digital possibilities for achieving their professional and didactic goals (in addition to the possibilities of the JGU Reader like providing texts, sending assignments).

At the end of the questionnaire, you can indicate whether you would like further support in transferring your course into a digital format. The answers will then be given personally by the JGU Digital Teaching Team if you provide your email address for this purpose. Of course, support at a later date is also possible. You can save the questions and your answers as a PDF file and use them for your further preparation.

The following section aims to help you analyse your planned course and reflect on the development from the 'big picture' subject area to individual learning steps, obstacles and aha-effects for the students.
The questions support the concrete implementation, how it can be broken down to the individual topics or weeks in the digital course. Please answer the questions, if only briefly. It will help you to find out how your online course can be structured according to your requirements. Furthermore, it is helpful as a basis if you want support from Team Digitale Lehre later on.

What do you expect your students to be able to at the end of the course?

The following levels refer to Krathwohl's taxonomy (, especially p. 4). They are supposed to be an orientation for the structure of your online course and possible tools. They are not a demand on the design of your course.

How can you as a teacher perceive that your students have understood the subject matter? Which means or tools do you think might be useful?

You can find an overview of the Moodle "activities" here:
